he Cellotar is a guitar-tuned, fretted cello/guitar hybrid bowed instrument that I created as a cost-effective solution for guitar players to be able to record and perform real bowed strings sounds with minimal time investment. The inspiration for it harkens back to 2006 when I ran across the TogaMan GuitarViol online and became obsessed with the idea of a bowed guitar.
I have recently overhauled my approach to building Cellotars to make them as awesome as possible while putting them in as many players' hands as possible, and hopefully they can be a useful stepping stone into the world of bowed guitar for folks who may be interested but not yet in a position to buy one of Jonathan's beautiful GuitarViols.
